CALABRESE BLUE WIND F1 ~ a fine flavoured and speedy calabrese to fall in love with. 20 seeds SOW: Blue Wind has an unusually wide sowing season from March to August for cropping in as little as 8-9 weeks. They are fine to be started in pots for planting out at the 2/3 leaf stage. GROW: Space your plants at 25-30cm apart. Calabrese like to grow steadily and do need watering in dry weather. Cut the head before the flowers open. EAT: We like to lightly steam our calabrese until it is just tender and enjoy the flavour fresh but they can also be frozen. To Freeze – blanch for 2 minutes, plunge into cold water, drain and pack.
